Marbach is on course for further expansion. In addition to its activities in Mexico, China and the USA, Marbach is expanding its capacities in Poland. After two Polish plants were established in Tarnowskie Góry and Kielce with a total of 175 employees, a new plant in Poznań with 50 employees has been added.
Managing Director of Marbach Poland, Pavol Kunstar: "Together the two Marbach locations in Poland have become a strong pillar of the globally active Marbach Group. The demand for Marbach tools in Poland has steadily increased in recent years. To satisfy demand sustainably the only way was to expand the existing capacities. When the opportunity arose to take over our competitor, Wykrojniki Polskie Sp.Z o.o., we did not hesitate. Especially since the majority of our customers come from the Poznań region. This investment will allow us to increase our production capacity by almost 20%. It will enable us to meet growing demand and to become more flexible. The new location in the west of Poland will enable us to better support our customers on site."
The contract for the transfer was signed on September 2nd. Marbach will take on all employees of Wykrojniki Polskie Sp.Z o.o.. The new location has an area of 1,350 m², of which 950 m² is production space. From this point on the company in Poznań will be managed as a Marbach location. By the end of 2019, Marbach guidelines will be introduced at the new location and production capacity will be expanded. This includes investment in new machines, new software, new structures and employee training. As of 01.01.2020 the entire integration of the new location into the Marbach Group will be completed.
Marbach now provides on its new Experience Hub exclusive content and information for interested parties from the packaging industry. In addition to videos, animations and digital brochures, visitors of this page can also download white papers on important industry-specific topics and make direct appointments with a Marbach contact person. Marbach specialists will answer questions via email, chat or phone.
Once again this year Marbach will follow in a long-established tradition: Marbach will make Christmas donations to two aid projects under the motto “donations instead of presents”. When selecting the recipients of the donations, it has been important to the Marbach Management to split the money between internationally well-known and regionally respected institutions. This year, Marbach has donated 7,000 Euro to "Help - Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe e.V." and an additional donation of 3,000 Euro to the "Tafeln Heilbronn" (a food distribution charity). Due to the current pandemic situation, however, the handover of the donations was different than usual this year. One of the donations was handed over online, the other with face masks and at a distance.
In November Marbach participated in the new virtual trade show ConneXion. During the 4 weeks of the ConneXion exhibition large numbers of visitors informed themselves about news in the packaging industry. Marbach presented its latest new developments for more performance in packaging production.
Marbach is represented at its Heilbronn headquarters by two divisions: Die Cutting Technology and Thermoforming Tool Manufacturing. But a product which directly connects these two divisions is SR technology (steel rule technology). This is because the Die Cutting Technology division supplies the Thermoforming Tool manufacturing division, and many other thermoforming manufacturers worldwide, with special steel-rule dies.
